The Blue Fish is in a trendy neighborhood in Jacksonville Florida. They specialize in seafood, but also have a few non sea food plates. My husband had the oysters Bienville which he said we're great. That is a favorite dish of his that is hard to find. He had blackened swordfish. I had steak it was well cooked. Meals are... More

We were sitting in the small backyard with a fountain in the middle - very pleasant surrounding. We ordered Gumbo soup and Jambalaya which we liked very much. It was as good as in New Orleans.Tiffany the waitress, was helpful and very attentive. Then we ordered Cappuccino and to our surprise it was unexpectedly very good.

I have been coming here for many years with my husband, family, friends etc and we ALWAYS go when it is a nice day to sit out in the courtyard area. Reminds me of New Orleans and I love sitting in the courtyard. Brunch is amazing, shrimp and grits, oysters, unlimited mimosas...enough said! Very friendly staff and service.

We have visited Blue Fish several times, primarily on holidays like Thanksgiving. Visits at this time have always pleased us. The crowd is manageable on special occasions, and the menu reflects the season with varied choices either on the buffet or on a special menu. The atmosphere is lively but pleasant; not overly loud or annoying. Service on most visits... More

A group of seven friends got together at the Blue Fish Restaurant to celebrate a birthday and the season. Our reservation was on time, the service was professional, attentive and informative. Every one selected something different from the menu. The plate presentation was very nice, the food was delicious and the portions adequate. We were all very satisfied with the... More

Great place to sit for happy hour. Cheap to but it doesn't figure in to quality. A few great staff members who remember frequent flyers. Worth wait and great for holiday cheer

Atmosphere was good but not conducive to a large group. We had 6 people and we were crowded on one table (normally 4 people table). To get HH prices you had to be in bar area, only four tables and seats at bar. The food was great. We had seafood dip, stuffed mushrooms, onion rings, oyster shooters, and yucca with... More

My family and I went there for happy hour. It's a pretty good happy hour as far as prices on drinks and food goes. The food was for the most part great and the drinks were good. Don't go for happy hour if you are with a big party because they Dan only sit you outside and unfortunately for us,... More
